‘It just shows that this investigation was getting started way before the FISA court began authorizing the surveillance of Carter Page’

RUSH EXCERPT:

OWENS: "Even if — it seems like their argument is that since this was a biassed source, that it completely raises questions whether or not Carter Page’s surveillance is appropriate or not or even legal. I think the thing is, that goes back to the Russia investigation origins of it and the Papadopoulos thing. Just shows that this investigation was getting started way before the FISA court began authorizing the surveillance of Carter Page. So you know, I think it’s — if this motive is to undermine the Russia investigation, it doesn’t — it almost undermines itself."
